War Story Trailer

"I know you, I want to help you!" IFC has debuted the trailer for a Sundance film called War Story, from writer/director Mark Jackson, starring Catherine Keener as a photojournalist who tries to help a young refugee, but seems to get in over her heard with some violent political affairs. French actress Hafsia Herzi also stars in the film. This looks interesting, but there's not much more to it than a shoddy story and some campy, ever-so-obvious dialogue about "but I had to get the story!" wait "there is no story." "What have they done to you?" It doesn't look terrible, just not that good. Take a look below, this might interest others more.

Here's the official trailer for Mark Jackson's War Story, direct from IFC Films' YouTube:

A battle-scarred photojournalist (Keener) risks her life to rescue a young refugee in this gripping, ripped-from-the-headlines thriller. War Story is directed by Mark Jackson, from a screenplay by Kristin Gore and Mark Jackson. From the Sundance guide: Lee, a world-weary American woman arrives in an Italian city. Her tangles with hotel staff, incessant smoking, and disregard of the persistently ringing telephone hint at her volatility brewing beneath the surface. Between fitful naps, she wanders the streets, snapping pictures of refugees as if her camera were both weapon and olive branch. Struggling to confront her demons, Lee resolves to help a beautiful young woman in need, and this passionate new purpose begins to dissolve Lee’s anguish. The film will be released in select theaters and on VOD from IFC Films starting July 30th.

Rude awakening? Sounds good. Keener is a fine actress.
